The UK government has awarded funding to Trikon Technologies to develop “Broad Ion Beam Deposition” (BIBD) technology for 300mm magnetoresistive random access memory (MRAM) manufacture. The total value of the award is up to 50% of the project value of GBP3.29mn ($5.92mn), with the work expected to last 18 months.
Tuesday 14th September 2004
A quantum mechanical 3D simulator for semiconductor devices has been created under the EU Nanotechnology Computer Aided Design (NANOTCAD) project. The Simulator for Nanodevices (SIMNAD) can be used to compute the quantum mechanical charge density and tunnel probabilities in semiconductor nano-structures of diverse material geometries. SIMNAD acts complementarily to the commercial DESSIS-ISE device simulator, allowing the interchange of data and simulations in coupled mode. The coupling scheme of the two simulators provides a package enabling the simultaneous modelling of a 3D quantum-mechanical charge distribution in a sub-region of a larger device, which is under full operation.

ASML and Nikon announced a mutual agreement to request stays of the legal and administrative proceedings in each jurisdiction in which they have been pursuing claims related to intellectual property.
Wednesday 8th September 2004
Intel has built fully functional 70Mbit static random access memory (SRAM) chips with more than half a billion transistors on a die area of 110mm2 using a 65nm process technology. The transistor gates measure 35nm, approximately 30% smaller than the gate lengths on the company's previous 90nm technology. Each SRAM memory cell has six transistors packed into an area of 0.57micron2.
